Flannel shirts, hayrides, and corn mazes are all signs of autumn. To celebrate the season, Dairy Queen is making it more delicious by announcing its new DQ Fall Blizzard Menu — which is available now.
The Pumpkin Pie Blizzard Treat is made with pieces of pumpkin pie blended with creamy DQ soft serve. It’s finished off with whipped topping and a dash of nutmeg.
The Snickerdoodle Cookie Dough Blizzard Treat begins with snickerdoodle cookie dough sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Then it is blended into DQ’s famous soft serve.
Dairy Queen knows fudge makes everything better. The Caramel Fudge Cheesecake Blizzard Treat is decadent and delicious. Oreo cookie pieces and cocoa fudge are folded into the soft serve. The whipped topping adds an extra bit of extravagance.
The Oreo Hot Cocoa Blizzard Treat consists of Oreo cookie pieces and cocoa fudge mixed into soft serve. It is garnished with whipped topping.
Dairy Queen didn’t forget about the peanut butter lovers. Their Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Pie Blizzard Treat blends Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and graham crackers with DQ’s soft serve. Then, whipped topping is added for an additional dollop of deliciousness.
Choco Dipped Strawberry Blizzard Treat begins with strawberry and choco chunks combined with DQ’s soft serve.
Dairy Queen is also launching a new flavor! Try the Royal Reese’s Fluffernutter Blizzard Treat. Reese’s Pieces candies and peanut butter are swirled together with creamy soft serve. This new Blizzard flavor has a marshmallow center!
Dairy Queen introduced Blizzard Treats in 1985. In a special DQ offer, customers can enjoy a Blizzard Treat for only $0.85 if they order off the DQ app from September 11–14, 2023 at participating locations.
The new Fall Blizzard Treats are available now.
Fun fact #1: The first Dairy Queen opened in 1938. A soft serve cone cost a nickel and a hot fudge sundae was eight cents.
Fun fact #2: Blizzards aren’t made with ice cream. DQ’s creamy soft serve doesn’t meet the Food and Drug Administration’s requirements to be called ice cream. In order to be ice cream, the minimum butterfat content must be 10%. A Blizzard only has 5% butterfat content.
Fun fact #3: Gwen Stefani, her brother, Eric, and John Spence all worked at Dairy Queen in 1986 before forming the band, No Doubt. In fact, Gwen Stefani said in an interview for the Marie Clair Magazine that she made her first dollar at Dairy Queen. Other famous stars that once worked at Dairy Queen include actress, Bonnie Hunt, and country singer, Martina McBride.
Which flavor of Blizzard Treats would you like to try first? For me, it’s hands down the Caramel Fudge Cheesecake! I’d love to hear your opinions in the comments!
